By now you must certainly know that Ecorazzi has a full-fledged charity crush on Farm Sanctuary — an organization that works hard to combat the abuses of factory farming. And we aren’t the only ones!

Earlier this year, we got the chance to attend the Farm Sanctuary Gala and brought you back exclusive interviews from celebs like Russell Simmons, Emily Deschanel, Melissa Rivers and Dennis Kucinich. Now, Farm Sanctuary is bringing the party to Washington D.C with hosts Nellie Mckay and Persia White as they rally to raise critically needed funds for some of the sanctuary’s most recently rescued animals.

Here’s the deal: in June of this year, Farm Sanctuary mobilized in Iowa to take part in one of the most ambitious farm animal rescues ever undertaken, after thousands of pigs were left to die in the Midwest flood disaster. During both land and water rescue operations, 69 pigs were rescued, including many pregnant sows who were once confined to gestation crates on factory farms. Now, these pigs, many of whom are still suffering from serious health problems, are at Farm Sanctuary receiving urgent care and undergoing rehabilitation. That’s where you come in.

To raise some extra dough and honor those rescued, Farm Sanctuary is holding Party For The Pigs on Saturday, October 18 from 6-9 p.m. at the Equality Center in Washington D.C. The evening will include a silent auction, vegan hors d’oeuvres, a wine and beer bar, and a special performance by singer/songwriter Nellie McKay. Oh and I’ll be there too….so make sure you come say hello! Tickets are just $50 and of course all the proceeds go towards a wonderful cause. To find out more call 607-583-2225 ext 221 or visit FarmSanctuary.org! See ya at the par-tay!

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
